"Let's start off by saying I'm 23 years old haven't been to the dentist and 12 years needed quite a bit of work done.. when I came to this location a week ago I was very nervous and scared not knowing what's to come and afraid of the judgment of my teeth condition, but on my first visit was very surprised on how welcoming and nice front woman were Kelly and Jessica made me feel very welcomed. I was called to the back to meet Doctor Barrett and ms Gracie both amazing women getting right to work while making you feel right at home but also being like a mother and telling you what you need to do lol.. on my second visit I came in to get a root canal and three fillings I was there for 3 hours because it was very busy, it didn't feel like it though I was being talked to Non-Stop and they engage very well into their customers long story short they fixed my three front teeth cavities so now I can smile without feeling judged in a root canal that was needed I feel amazing and I love this location will never go to any other one...."- J.S. / Google / Nov 30, 2019

A dental crown can be used in several different situations. Crowns can be used to keep a tooth (weakened by decay) from breaking or they can hold parts of a tooth together that have already cracked. Crowns can also be used to repair a tooth that is loose or extremely worn down. They can serve as support for a tooth with a cavity that is too large for a tooth-colored filling, to hold a dental bridge in place, and to protect a tooth that is misshapen or discolored. MINT dentistry crowns are made with top-quality porcelain and placed with state-of-the-art techniques to ensure an attractive, long-lasting restoration.
What to Expect
After your treatment plan is developed in your consultation, we will take impressions of your teeth that will be used to make your custom crown. If needed, a temporary restoration can be used to protect your tooth until your custom crown is ready. Once your custom crown is done, we will contact you to schedule an appointment for placement. After settling into a massaging treatment chair, you will be offered a pair of Beats headphones and MINT sunglasses to help you feel at ease throughout your appointment. To begin, the area to be treated will be prepped with local anesthesia. More sedation options may be available if you have anxiety about the process. Once you are ready, a skilled dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and filing down the tooth to make room for the crown so it will fit snugly. The crown will be cemented onto the tooth or attached to the dental implant. After the crown is set, we will adjust the fit so it feels comfortable.
While your mouth will be temporarily numb from the local anesthesia, you should be able to leave after your crown is placed to continue your normal day. We will teach you the best way to care for your crown, including how to clean it and what food you need to avoid. Our team encourages patients schedule a follow-up appointment to get their bite checked following the placement of a crown to ensure their alignment is correct. Complications with your bite are difficult to avoid because local anesthesia is numbing your mouth; however, we can quickly fix it. If you notice a problem with your bite, contact our office to schedule a quick appointment. During your oral healthexam at MINT dentistry, we will assess your crown and adjust the fit as needed so it remains comfortable. We will let you know when the crown needs to be repaired or replaced, but with proper care, a crown should last for many years. If you experience any issues with your crown (for example, it falls out or feels loose), contact our office right away. Do not try to fix it or put it back in yourself since this can lead to a problem, like an infection or improper fit that affects your bite.
The MINT Commitment
While it will vary based on your policy, if you have dental insurance a part of the cost of your crown may be covered. After speaking with your insurance company, our office can estimate your out-of-pocket expenses. During your consultation, we can help you determine the best options for your crown based on your goals and budget. We will also go over payment options, including the MINT discount plan, which can help make your treatment easier to afford. We are committed to helping each of our patients get sexy teeth. Our dental crowns are made with the highest quality porcelain material so they last a long time and look beautiful.
